SAN TAN VALLEY, Ariz. — With the dust barely settled from the 2020 edition of the Keyser Manufacturing Wild West Shootout presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts at FK Rod Ends Arizona Speedway, officials are already busy planning for 2021.

In fact, the dates for the mega miniseries have been set for Jan. 9, 10, 13, 15, 16 and 17, 2021 at the three-eighths-mile oval located just outside of Phoenix.

“We had a banner event in 2020 with great racing, great fans, and great sponsors. With so much great support and momentum, we’re now focused on the 2021 Keyser Manufacturing Wild West Shootout,” said event promoter Chris Kearns. “Even though we are roughly 11 months away from next year’s event, I’ve been hearing from countless fans and racers, who are already making plans to join us next year.

“These are exciting times for our whole staff, and we’re working on making the 2021 edition the biggest and best yet.

Over $200,000 in prize money will be on the line during the 15th Annual Keyser Manufacturing Wild West Shootout presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts.

The event includes six complete programs for three divisions.

Each night will find the Dirt Track Bank Super Late Models presented by Black Diamond Race Cars, Mesilla Valley Transportation/Border Tire Modifieds presented by Arizona Differential and X-Mods presented by Barnett Harley Davidson in action.

Additionally, an open practice session is slated for both Jan. 8 and Jan. 12.

Last but not least, each division will compete for a mini series points championship and accompanying point fund.

“It’s cool to see how families are starting to make this an annual racing vacation. There’s so much to see and do in the great Phoenix area and typically the weather is fantastic,” Kearns continued. “The event is truly a homecoming for fans and drivers from across North America, and we couldn’t be more appreciative of all of the support that we get.”
